Essential Lock-Down Viewing - The Man Behind The Poster...

Caught up with Breaking Bad? Giggled your way through every Adam Sandler film on Netflix and watched every episode of Friends (twice)?

If so, it’s time for some ‘lock-down’ culture, movie poster style!

Whether you are a movie poster nut, a film buff, or just an occasional cinema-goer, you will have seen the work of Drew Struzan.


Because for those of us in our middle age, Drew’s art defines the movie culture we grew up with.

For younger generations, you’ve seen Star Wars, you’ve heard of Indiana Jones and you know that the car in Back to The Future is a Delorean. You know Drew’s work.

So, after a few weeks stuck at home, why not watch something a little different?

With exclusive interviews with Guillermo del Toro, Alice Cooper, Frank Darabont, Michael J. Fox, Harrison Ford and (in one his very rare outings) George Lucas, ‘Drew: The Man Behind The Poster’ takes a very loving look at the work and life of Drew Struzan.

What comes across is an amazing talent wrapped up in a very humble man - someone you would love to be able to call a friend.



You can find the movie on the usual streaming services, including...

Next week we’ll be taking a look at one of Drew's amazing posters that didn’t make it to the cinema – which is a travesty…

Until then, stay safe.
